I thought I was the only one.

 “Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You too? I thought I was the only one.”

C.S. Lewis

… and that’s precisely what happened with Andrea of Teetoo. I found her blog through Elycia’s by mere chance and added her immediately to my favourite blog list as we seemed to share several interests – the biggest one I noticed at the time was the love for the band the Pixies, which is one of my favourite bands ever since I was a kid. Anyway and to make the story short, we started chatting and emailing each other and discovered so many things in common, not only in tastes but also life story that it was uncanny. We must have been sisters in another life, I tell you! As Andrea is in Canada, we still haven’t met in person but we sent each other a parcel of joy and agreed we would only open it when we got a chance to get together on Skype. And that’s what we did. I saw Andrea and her kids, we chatted and giggled for a couple of hours and opened our presents. All of the things Andrea sent me was spot on – our tastes are so similar in so many things it would be hard to be disappointed.  Right now as I am writing this I am listening to the mix cd Andrea sent me and trying to guess the artists. So much fun!

Andrea is also very talented: the little plushy snow man you see here was handmade by her and comes with a certificate of authenticity. The skull lady and the little owl cards on the bag were drawn by her and they are sooo cute!! You can see what Huggables are available on Etsy if you want one of your own.

Apart from what’s on the above photos, Andrea also sent me a lovely vintage scarf, which I wore the very next day to work. I’m a sucker for head scarves!

Outfit Details: Head scarf – vintage, present from Andrea, Peplum Top – Target (from my last trip to Florida), Trousers – Zara (on sale, from my trip to Belgium), White Pleather Jacket – H&M (got it second hand from Sara of the Good the Bad and The Ugly), Shoes – Office (via Ebay), Bag – from a swap with Lili

Thank you Andrea, for all the lovely things and for being my friend. This is what I would call blogger love. One day we will definitely have to meet. Don’t forget to check out what I sent Andrea on her website.
